Liverpool, located 32 km south-west of the Sydney CBD, is the administrative seat of the local government area of the city of Liverpool. Situated in the Cumberland Plain, the suburb is one of the oldest urban settlements in Australia.
The 1950s saw Liverpool develop into an outer suburb of metropolitan Sydney, with housing commission estates sprouting throughout the 1960s. Much development has continued since and currently the majority of dwellings are apartments, with both high density residential and commercial.
With options for shopping, entertainment, pubs, nightclubs, botanical parks, sporting facilities, schools, a teaching hospital and one of Australia’s largest libraries, Liverpool has been likened to another Sydney CBD. It is the major city centre of South West Sydney and offers Westfield Liverpool as well as Liverpool Plaza.
Families have several options for education and learning with both public and private schools. The suburb has easy access to transport with regular bus and train services, and offers plenty of amenities, employment opportunities and rich cultural diversity.
